Hamsters shouldn't rattle.
Last night, mylarry took Yakums out of his cage for a bit of petting and handling. Friendly hamster, begs to be picked up, funny looking with all that long, long hair. Larry had given The Rodent pistachios earlier; Yak gets all the closed shell ones to chew. Larry picked up Yakums and of course he wiggled. Rattle, rattle. Larry shook him gently, softly. Rattle, rattle. He had pistachios in his cheeks, and the nuts were rattling in the shells. Best remark I've heard lately, "Hamsters shouldn't rattle!"
